No! I am not able to give a reason for so many mid-airs on this night. It was by no means our largest number of fliers and it would be impossible to pin-point whether it was more frequent among the Micro models or the larger Foamies for it was spread fairly evenly among all aircraft. They did happen and it was a shame for those involved and the ensuing work that would be necessary for their repair.
A lot of interest was shown in Mike OReillys micro jet Mig. (Please see my first picture above.) It was an attractive little aircraft to say the least and with no external propeller, its lines were particularly clean. Some of our friends had seen this little whiz ship in action at Monartos Jet Day and they expected it to be a real racer. I doubt that anyone there was not looking on with, perhaps, mouth open when it literally screamed across the floor for take-off,
